With all eyes on the fashion-forward first lady, we began to overlook the stunner across the sea, Kate Middleton. Though the duchess of Cambridge has long inspired fashion journalists and enthusiasts alike, MObama's latest risk-taking choices (nails and all!) have made everyone far too busy swooning. That is, until Kate Middleton casually whipped out her crazy-beautiful, floor-length Temperley number.
Attending a formal dinner at her alma mater, the University of St. Andrews in Scotland, where she first met her hubby, Kate embodied elegance in a black, lace Temperley gown. She accessorized her ensemble with a pop of color in the form of a red clutch, while her hair and makeup are just perfect Kate, through and through. (Seriously: Not to be creepy, but don't you just want to nest in those soft chestnut locks of hers?) The duchess also employed her smarts in saving: The aforementioned dress had already been worn by Kate to the London premiere of War Horse.
Woah, Freaky Friday! It seems Kate, too, has been taking cues from Michelle Obama. Her outfit-repeat mirrors the FLOTUS' recycling of a Michael Kors dress on election night. Recycling really is best, it seems.
